More than 100 participants from across the Global Maritime Community of Interest came together to focus on the theme Unifying Unmanned Systems to Enhance Maritime Security: Building Networks to Solve Unique Challenges.
More than 130 participants from across the Global Maritime Community of Interest came together to focus on the theme Evolution of Big Data and Opportunities for the Maritime Domain: The Importance of Public-Private-Academic-International Partnerships.
The 2016 theme was “Challenges and Opportunities of Current & Emergent Maritime Capabilities: Exploring the Intersection of Technology and Policy.” Discussion focused on the intersection of technology and policy in the context of emergent technologies, enhanced satellite capabilities, and enterprise systems for information sharing and safeguarding. The result of the GMF was a compelling call to move forward with a strategic approach that puts mission at the center of technology innovation, while integrating policy and other non-technical issues throughout the design, development, and use phases. Six interconnected themes or “tensions” emerged from the GMF presentations and discussions.
